    Maybe he just meant he didn't close his checking account or he has a china cabinet in storage or something

    I feel like if he'd said this we would know about it. Random twitter quote with no proof is worth nothing

    There was an April's fool article about Hall only waiving for EDM I believe. There would be a lot more smoke if this was something legit.

    2 goals and barely above .5 PPG for the former Hart Winner. Yikes... He was a ghost in the Buffalo games I watched this year (who wasn't though).

    I feel bad, will teams even offer and kind of long term money or contract to him this offseason

    I'll give you a first and a prospect but you gotta take Byron and retain 50%

    Think the Islanders and Bruins should be in on this. He has a quality track record of production and they could both use another one.

    Wouldn't break the bank either considering the season he's put together so far.

    You aren’t not allowed to have conditional picks any more . CBA closed it off if I remember correctly.

    this would be awful for LA. No need for Hall and no LA should not be using assets for a pending UFA. I wouldn’t do it for Walker alone.

    thanks for reminding,
    that is partly correct, and relates directly to part of my example
    the pick upgrade for re-signing is no longer allowed

    There’s some big changes coming in the next NHL CBA
    "No conditional picks for signing with the team a player was traded to. Ex: no upgrading a 2nd round pick for a 1st if that player signs with the team that traded for him."

    Wait, so you can do a conditional pick if a player signs with an unrelated team? That would be awesome. 2nd round pick that upgrades to a 1st if Hall signs in Colorado. Then Kevyn Adams just spends the entire summer badgering Sakic to sign Hall.

    Seems like an overpayment for a 2 goal scorer on a rental deal, no?

    A first-rounder would have to head Buffalo's way in order for them to retain 50% no problem. It's valuable for contenders in that sense.

    Pointless move. I guess playing Hall would be a pointless move as well, so there you go.

    you can’t condition on resigning of a player.

    you can still condition in where the pick is such as

    1 lottery protect
    Top 10 protect
    Playoff protect
    Have a 2nd become a 1st if team advances in playoffs and the player plays >50% of games

    I’d say the one with more goals... this year. ;)

    I don’t think anyone will even notice he’s not on the roster

    No thank you, Hall takes every team he goes to to the gutter, we actually want playoff success.
